Developing OpenStack Dashboard using Fedora
Lately, I'm getting involved into developing OpenStack, especially it's dashboard.
Good news is, at least for OpenStack's dashboard, devstack is not required in any case, it just runs on plain Fedora. I simply followed the instructions provided for Fedora's test day, and they worked great for me, no rocket science and no engineering master required.
Additionally I installed git and git-review (as root): | yum -y install git git-review then go to the location where you want to put the code, for me that's | cd ~/work
and execute | git clone https://github.com/openstack/horizon.git && cd horizon
This will get the source code from github, will create a new directory named horizon, and change to that directory.
starts Django's built in development server on your host, per default on port 8000.
To visit your shiny Dashboard, direct your webbrowser to http://localhost:8000 .
When finished with your desired changes, you should submit them for review. The process around that is covered here: http://wiki.openstack.org/GerritWorkflow
